  • Overview

    Since 2007, the Ohio Workforce Coalition has been bringing together leaders from education and training institutions, economic and workforce development organizations, business and industry, labor, and human service providers. The Coalition promotes public policies that build the skills of adult workers, meet employer skill needs, and strengthen the workforce system to ensure opportunity and prosperity for Ohio families.

Two OWC Members Join NSC’s Leadership Council

Ross Meyer – Partners for a Competitive Workforce, and Kerrie Carte -WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc. will represent Ohio on the National Skills Coalition’s Leadership Council for the remainder of 2012 and 2013.

The National Skills Coalition advocates on public policies according to a set of jointly-held priorities developed across the Coalition’s multi-stakeholder membership of community-based organizations, community colleges, labor unions and affiliates, employers and business associations, and representatives of state / local workforce and higher education systems.

In 2009, to ensure the Coalition’s positions and strategies remained consistent with the perspectives across its diverse network, NSC’s Board of Directors created a rotating Leadership Council of the organization’s most active members to serve as the programmatic advisory body to NSC’s staff and board. The Council continues to vet new policy positions taken by the Coalition, and helps to lead the organizing, communications and advocacy strategies developed to advance that agenda. The Council also helps the staff and board think about how to grow the presence and effectiveness of the National Skills Coalition at both the state and federal levels.

The Leadership Council is a rotating body of approximately 60 leaders, representing workforce and education stakeholder groups from states throughout the country, who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to NSC’s skills agenda. The Council serves as:
● A sounding board for policy positions and organizing strategies taken on by NSC at both the federal and state levels;
● An advisory body for NSC’s Board of Directors, which has been charged with ensuring that NSC’s day‐to‐day work is consistent with its
founding mission; and
● A leadership development opportunity for standout NSC members who have not had a chance to weigh in on the Coalition’s work and direction as an organization.

Congratulations to Ross and Kerrie!
